Hike/Walk/Trek (time est. w/o lunch) 5:00:00 [3]
shoes: Salomon Ellipse hiking boots

Maggie to Oxtonque

We woke up after a cool night to 8C in the morning which turned into a perfect ~23C hiking day for our last section. Amazing rock formations and creeks along the way. Everyone was in good spirits and happy to be done. Stopped at the Farmers Daughter for a late lunch on my way home (it's tradition :).

Great trip with good company. Very surprised how wet the trail still was given the dry summer we are having. Definitely would not do this in a wet year or in the Spring but lovely otherwise.

Note: the campsites are not alway as printed on the 2017 map
Cell access at Maggie and West Otterpaw Lake

Hike/Walk/Trek (time est. w/o lunch) 5:00:00 [3] 10.5 km (28:34 / km)
shoes: Salomon Ellipse hiking boots

Clara to Maggie Lake

Another lovely day with nice changing landscape. It was hot and humid all week so we initially didn't mind the rain until the sky opened soaking us through by the time we made camp. Again a lovely site (2nd on east site) with rocks to sit on an a Loon family to watch. Would be a nice spot to hang out for a few days.

Hike/Walk/Trek (time est. w/o lunch) 4:30:00 [3] 9.0 km (30:00 / km)

West Otterpaw Lake to Clara Lake

Took my time to enjoy the morning and left a bit later than my friends, re-joining them at lunch time.

We were very lucky and always found lovely campsites, staying at the site near the portage trail on Clara.

Hike/Walk/Trek (time est. w/o lunch) 6:00:00 [3] 12.0 km (30:00 / km)
shoes: Salomon Ellipse hiking boots

Lupus Lake to West Otterpaw Lake (first site, nice, open, good swimming/water access)

One person wasn't feeling well right from the start on Monday so we decided to shorten the distance from 18K to 12K staying along the 2nd loop. While it was the right decision I was a bit uneasy about going off course from what we told the park. In the end there were few hikers around all week and plenty of sites available.

Algonquin Western Uplands Backpacking Trail with two friends from Ottawa

Re-connected with a friend from Ottawa (and her fried) for a second go at the 3rd loop that we partly hiked exactly 13 years ago when Eco was only a 9 months old pup, bittersweet.

Started at Oxtonque Lake counter clockwise to Lupus Lake with lunch stop at Ramona Lake. Lovely trail, frailty gradual incline, with the 2nd site at Lupus being nice and open.
